Valldemossa, a monastery for Chopin


Valldemossa is a beautiful town located west of Mallorca on the Sierra de Tramontana. Holds a former Carthusian monastery founded by monks in 1399. As a result of the Confiscation Act of Mendizabal in 1835, passed into private hands. The monastery hosted the pianist Frederic Chopin and writer George Sand in the winter of 1838-1839, after which came the writer’s novel “A Winter in Majorque”, where this reflected their uneasiness with the Islanders.

Each summer in the month of August is a musical festival dedicated to Chopin, with international guests (www.festivalchopin.com).
